Readers fell in love with Dara McAnulty's beautiful Diary of a Young Naturalist, and now he's written a brilliant new book for children!

Wild Child is a stunning gift book that lets young readers join Dara on a nature walk, exploring five different environments: looking out of the window; venturing into the garden; walking in the woods; investigating heathland; and wandering on the river bank.

The book is full of fascinating facts to discover about the native birds, animals and plants in the various settings, along with a closer look at natural phenomena, categorisation in the animal kingdom and even the collective nouns for different birds.

And there are also activities to try - why not plant some wild flowers or make a bird feeder?

Wild Child - which also features Dara's advice for young conservationists - is brought to life with fantastic illustrations from Barry Falls, making it a real book to treasure.

We have three copies of Wild Child to give away, so if you fancy winning one simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Wednesday, 4 August. Good luck!
